Nine block album quilt with wreaths and pots of flowers, no two of which are the same. The pots of flowers in the corners facing inward give a nice symmetry to the overall design. It is clearly a rural version of a Baltimore Album quilt. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. It is well quilted with feathered vines along the grid and border. The applique border flowers are an effective continuation of the shapes of the flowers within the quilt...

This is one of the most dramatic examples of a Swirling Pinwheel (aka Rising Sun or Wheel of Life) quilt that I have seen. The use of solid red and green punctuated by orange centers gives it real drama. The rows of diamonds around the Pinwheels add to the pulsating quality. LeMoyne Stars are another fine element. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. There are some slight irregularities in the green which is probably a home dyed fabric and somewhat fugitive...

After much searching, I have not found a comparable pattern to this. It is closest to those known as Wandering Foot; Burr and Thistle or The Swallow.

This is one of the nicest drawstring seed bags that I have ever owned. It is a very tiny calico print in the best blue. It has the original drawstring and I always think that makes it nicer.

This is an absolutely stunning Windmill Blades (aka Pineapple) Log Cabin quilt done in wool challis with a cotton backing.

This pin cushion makes quite a statement. It has wonderful calico print fabrics in soft red, blue and brown. It is 7" square and is 3 1/2" thick and very heavy. You can see that it did have pins stuck in it at one time. It was made to be used. This is the best pin cushion! C. 1880 with some of the fabrics earlier.
